Accommodations & Layout

This 2008 Back Cove 33 is a beautiful example of the wildly popular Back Cove 33.  Well appointed with options and equipment, she is ready to make her next owner proud!  With her dark blue hull and contrasting fabrics, she is sure to be the queen of the fleet. 

Starting below in the bow, there is a very large v-berth forward with a settee on the port side.  Ample storage can be found throughout, and there are custom-storage drawers under the "V" portion of the berth.  Additional custom storage is found under the steps.  (If not to your liking, they are easily removed.)  Head is opposite to starboard, and offers quite a bit of room for a 33 foot vessel. 

Stepping up a few steps brings you to the helm deck.  Ergonomic helm with fully adjustable Stidd seat is to starboard, and the mate seat is opposite to port.  As you move further toward the stern, there is well-appointed galley to starboard with two refrigerators and a dual burner propane stove, large microwave, and stainless steel sink with storage throughout.  Sight-lines from the helm deck are superb and make time spent on the water a breeze. 


Opening the sliding door on the plexiglass enclosure brings you to the comfortable aft cockpit.  Aft seat runs across the inside of the transom, though it stops just short of full width to allow for a transom door!  Dual lockers in the sole allow ample space for storing larger items. 

If you are interested in a Back Cove 33, this vessel is not to be missed!   If you have any specific questions, please let me know.

Manufacturer Provided DescriptionThe Back Cove 33 is a larger yacht with the same simple features, usability and maintenance which have built the popularity of the Back Cove brand. Below deck is a large and comfortable vee-berth, convertible L-settee with a beautifully inlaid salon table. To starboard we created a large head with separate stall shower. On the helm deck, a full galley stretches out aft of the helm seat and to port is a dinette where four adults can sit to enjoy a meal. The inlaid table is a fine example of the Maine boat builder's craftsmanship and tradition, which is evident throughout the Back Cove 33. Forward of the dinette, a double mate's seat is a comfortable perch for the navigator. The helm deck is airy and bright with overhead hatches, opening side windows and a center opening windshield. A Stidd helm chair provides comfort for the helmsman underway. In her cockpit a large bench seat allows comfortable lounging while underway or when anchored in a peaceful cove. Engine access is extraordinary, as the helm deck, including the port side dinette, raises to expose the yacht's mechanical systems.
